Hi,
I've a got a basic doubt. When do decide to use an applet in a web based application?
Can't JSP provide all functionality that an applet can provide?
Do reply.
Thanks
VJ

Applets run on the client's side. JSPs run on the server side. Have you ever tried to use the AWT with a JSP?

JSP and java applets are totally different.
If you want interactivity use JSP or PHP or servlets or.....
If you want something to display eg an image etc and possibly involve animations or special effects then the java.awt classes can be used in an applet and it can look far better than a typical web page. You can also have games etc, but on the client side.
 
Have you no shame? Have you no decency? Have you no tiny ad?
